[Review] Mathewson, R.L. – Fire & Brimstone (Neighbor From Hell # 8)

Description: What happens when a Bradford with questionable OCD, a temper and a reputation for making his employees cry falls for the woman that refuses to accept the fact that he’s fired her and was terrifyingly more of a Bradford than he was?

My Thoughts: Ende letzten Jahres bin ich auf diese Reihe gestoßen und was soll ich sagen? Ich habe mich nach dem ersten Buch sofort in die Reihe und den Erzählstil verliebt. Die Geschichten von R.L.

Description: So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I’ve ever come across. 
Let’s be honest here, wouldn’t you wanna take a peek over the wall to catch a glimpse of him, hopefully when he is naked? Wouldn’t you melt away after watching him work out as his five-year-old kid cheered him on? Do I even have to mention th…

Description: Jason Thorn... My brother's childhood friend.
